one thing that comes to mind on the disturbing thing as the need for a seed bank is,
what if enough time passes after said 'major event' happens and a certain level of evolution was needed for the seed/plant to deal with the current
planet's conditions and state of being?
what if stored seeds didn't have the "thing" that was essential for living in a current time in the future? like a small evolutionary change that
the plant developed as time unfolded on earth and its environment?
edit: "for the seed"
